Yes, We Do eBooks…and More Than Just Kindle!
Of course, the fast-growing trend in the marketplace is to read books in digital form, using portable, hand-held eReaders like the Kindle Fire, the iPad, the Nook, or the Nexus. If the author chooses, we can convert the book manuscript into a digital version and make it available in the major eReader formats, such as:
- Sony Reader
Many authors choose to buy printed books from the publisher so they can sell them on their own, or even to give them away to friends and family. This is a particularly attractive option for an author who plans to use his or her book as part of a business venture, such as consulting, public speaking or offering workshops. Because we partner with one of the country’s premier print-on-demand printing companies, our authors receive prompt delivery of whatever quantity of printed books they choose to order. Volume discounts are available, and 100% of the cost benefits of these discounts are passed on to the author.
We Promote Our Authors and Their Books to Independent Bookstores
We enjoy partnering with our authors to get their books into independent bookstores around the country. Wherever we travel we seek out local independent bookstores who are open to carrying self-published books. The bookstore owners are able to order our books directly from our distribution partners (see above) or they can get author-purchased books either through us or from the author.
We Promote Our Authors and Sell Their Books at Various Events Around the Country
Throughout the year we attend various book fairs and conventions, primarily in the midwest. At these events we promote our authors and sell their books. We carry with us a selection of author-purchased books from our stock.
